As a veterinary student, Dr. Scavelli had a 
vision to create a referral only specialty practice. His plan for the practice was to bring together a group of specialists who would work as a team to provide the highest quality of veterinary medicine to the referred patient. His concept was unique at the time since his philosophy for the hospital was to follow 
a strict “referral only” policy for non-emergency 
patients. In this specialty hospital, patients would have the benefit of consultations with veterinarians from multiple specialties and have available to them state of the art diagnostic equipment.
As a surgeon at AMC for several years, 
Dr. Scavelli developed a relationship with primary 
veterinarians throughout the tri-state area. After 
nine years at AMC, Dr. Scavelli founded Veterinary 
Surgical Specialists (VSS), a surgical referral 
practice located in Shrewsbury, New Jersey which employed two board certified surgeons. Just a short four years later, Tom’s original vision for a referral 
only hospital came to fruition when he established Garden State Veterinary Specialists (GSVS) in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. GSVS grew quickly in response to the growing demand for community based specialty medicine and the need for a hospital 
which could provide 24/7 veterinary medical care. In 2012, with the support of the local veterinary community, Dr. Scavelli also established an 
Emergency Hospital in Iselin, New Jersey. The new hospital, Garden State Veterinary Services provides community based Emergent Care to patients in Middlesex County and the surrounding areas.

There are three Specialty and Emergency Veterinary Hospitals: Garden State Veterinary Specialists EATONTOWN moved to a new location January 2, 2024 and is open 24/7, 365. Garden State Veterinary Services Woodbridge opened November 6, 2023 and is open 24/7, 365. Greater Staten Island Veterinary Services, open 24/7, 365, is located in Staten Island, NY.

There are two Veterinary Emergency Services locations to date, open 7 days a week: Tinton Falls, the original location of GSVS and the original Iselin location. Additional Emergency Services locations will be opening throughout NJ in 2024.
